People living with HIV

In 2021 there were registered 165 cases, in which the victim was a person living with HIV.

Note:
In one case several perpetrators and several types of violations may be recorded (for example, the victim suffers from domestic violence by an intimate partner, and at the same time does not receive adequate protection from law enforcement agencies when contacting them), therefore, the amount of all types of violations exceeds the total number of cases.
Sometimes a client belongs to several key groups at the same time. In such cases, we include this case in the statistics of that key group, which is more relevant to the type of violation, described in this case.

In the second half of 2021, employees of the Tiberius project joined the REAct project. They were documenting cases in the LGBTIQ community related, among other things, to self-stigmatization while contacting medical institutions. As a result, it led to limited access to medical services. Therefore, in most of these cases, violators were not identified.

Provision of services

The REAct system is aimed not only at documenting cases of human rights violations, but also at the consolidation of efforts and resources for the purpose of high-quality legal response (punish / re-educate the perpetrator) and medical and social response (assistance to the victim) through the provision of services directly by REActors and their NGOs, or by referring to other NGOs or government agencies. We also record requests for services that were required but were not available. This information can be useful for planning programs and interventions in the country.

 

 

Reaction status

Case status (reaction status) – is primarily an indicator of the LEGAL response to the incident. What actions were taken by the reactor and its NGO in order to restore justice and punish the perpetrator for the violation, and what was the result of such actions.

In progress, the assistance is being provided – it means that the case is documented and the reactor plans to further assist the client by providing services.

Assistance was provided, resolved positively for the client – the reactor or any other partner organization has provided the client with legal services in order to resolve his case and everything ended well.

Assistance was provided, resolved negatively for the client – the reactor or any other partner organization did everything possible on their behalf to solve the case, but the outcome of events turned out to be unfavorable for the client.

Assistance was provided, partially resolved – it means that a part of the desired services was provided and some were not, due to the fact that the client does not contact the providers, passed away, or for other reasons

Case not resolved, no assistance provided – the reactor or any other partner organization did not respond to the case in any way, they did not help the client in any way, although such assistance and services were required, and the client was ready to receive them.

Case not resolved, contact with the client is lost  – the reactor or any other partner organization did not provide any services, since after reporting the case, the client immediately disappeared and does not get in touch.

Case not resolved, the client passed away – the client died before he could begin to receive services and his death was the result of a violation of his rights described in the case.

Case not resolved, the client did not want to solve the case – it means that immediately after reporting the case, the client refused to take any legal actions (write a complaint, write an application, contact lawyer etc.), although these were offered to him.

The case did not require a solution – it means that the case is already old and no legal services can already be provided, or if the victim is unknown and there is no possibility to establish a connection with it (cases from mass media), or if the client himself solved his problem, or if the case is not qualified as a violation of rights and legal assistance was not provided.
